Gone are the days of shower curtains and the only decision you had to make was choosing between the horrendous duck and flower patterns you wanted hanging in your bathroom.
With curtains being a thing of a past there are many different shower screens now on the market.
Below is a brief outline of the different types of shower screens you can get installed in your new bathroom.
- Fully framed:
These are the cheapest type of shower screen. The glass is framed on all edges. The metal framing comes in most colours, so you are sure to find a colour that matches the rest of your bathroom.
This type of shower screen is half way between a fully framed and a frameless screen. The frame is at the top and bottom of the screen, and comes in many colours. This type of screen is a little more pricey but with the smooth lines and a little more of a seamless look this screen adds class and style to any bathroom renovation.
This is the crème de la crème of shower screens. With no frames it oozes elegance and sophistication. This shower screen is aesthetically pleasing while still being functional. This again is a little more expensive than the semi-frameless shower screen, but will make any bathroom renovation look stunning. Some people may think that this shower screen is not as durable or water tight as the other types, but this glass is 7 times stronger than regular glass and it fitted with precision and expertise so water leakage will not be an issue.
- Shower curtain:
If you have your heart set on a vintage feel, shower curtains are still on the market. However they're a touch more stylish now. A curtain is especially suitable if the shower needs to be accessible by wheel chairs, commodes or a mother with children who doesn’t want to be holding the shower screen open with one leg. This is also a cheap alternative for a shower screen.
